Mason Regional Park

Western Bluebird

I've been wanting to see a Bluebird, and came across my first at William R. Mason Regional Park, or as it is more commonly referred to, Mason Park, just up the road in Irvine. Mason Park has two distinct parts. The east side is a wilderness area with a small creek and climbs the northern edge of the San Joaquin Hills. The west side of Mason Park is lawns, paved paths and cultivated trees and shrubs.  An artificial lake occupies the center of the park.

A brief wander around the landscaped area was rewarded by photos of a number of birds, from an Egyptian Goose to a family of Bushtits and a Snowy Egret. Look forward to a return visit and a scramble through the wilderness area.
